We had a mandatory meeting in the base theater to announce the closure. At the end the Colonel asked for questions. One poor guy said he had just re-upped for Hakata. The answer was "you're here aren't you?". It was the best assignment I had by far. I was in the tty repair shop. The whole time I was there we worked a 3 on 3 off schedule. Tough job but someone had to do it.

I so remember those days at Hakata, 66-68, D flight...especially my girlfriend while I was there, Yasako Aoki...should have married her, but it would have put me out of the AF Security...went to Vietnam after for a year, flew 124 missions low and slow...was happy to get out alive...should have re-enlisted...miss my friends and cohorts, remembering the nights we roamed the streets of Satosaki doing stupid things, but it was cheap fun and eye opening for a 19 yr old kid....it was an important part of my life...but, now the memories are fading...I hope you are all thriving and have a chance to relive some of those days in your dreams...Be well to all
